Susan Wojcicki, a Google veteran and currently the head of Google's YouTube business, has joined Salesforce.com’s board of directors, the company said on Monday. The move happened last Friday.
Wojcicki has been with YouTube since February 2014, after leaving her post as senior VP of Advertising & Commerce. She’s one of the most experienced executives in online advertising, having worked on multiple Google ad platforms, including AdWords, AdSense, DoubleClick, and Google Analytics, for 12 years.
"Susan is an extraordinary executive who has been instrumental in helping to build the world's largest consumer cloud company, where scale, reliability and security are of critical importance. Her experience will make her an outstanding addition to our board,” Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff said in a statement.
With the addition of Wojcicki, Salesforce.com now has 11 board members. Aside from Benioff and Wojcicki, Salesforce’s board includes some high profile names, including General Colin Powell, the former US Secretary of State; and Maynard Webb, a long-time entrepreneur and investor and currently the chairman of Yahoo.
